Cars belonging to reporters parked outside the home of Manchester United star Ryan Giggs have been attacked and vandalised by a group of men.

Greater Manchester police said at least six cars had been vandalised after a group of offenders arrived in a Ford Transit van and attacked them.

Reporters at the scene said tyres were slashed, and cars pelted with flour and eggs.

Giggs has been in the spotlight since a British politician defied a court order earlier this week and identified him as the footballer fighting a legal battle to prevent newspapers from publishing allegations of an affair.
